DON'T BUY THESE CARDS!!!

Excerpt: I am a professional photographer and I've been using SanDisk cards for over 8 years now and they have all been great...EXCEPT these new gold label cards. I was shooting a wedding and part way through the card it gave me an error and would no longer work. I then tried to transfer the files onto my computer and it would not even recognize the card. I ran recovery software and was able to get almost all the images off, but others have not been so fortunate.
Excerpt: I bought one of these cards in February. In the middle of the first shoot using it, it gave a read/write error. I was luckily able to recover the shots, and contacted B&H to get a replacement. Was using the replacement cart the other day. All was well, until I went to get the photos off the card. Again, it's lost all the shots. I'm in the process of recovering them now and will be returning this card for a refund and purchasing another brand.
Excerpt: Like everyone else experiencing corrupt files every now and then. Not sure why it happens once in a while, but it does happen!!! Lucky I shoot with a 5d3 with dual card slots. Im going back to the older series cards and not these gold series.
Excerpt: I have used SanDisk CF cards for 8 years without a problem until I changed to this card for my Nikon D700 last fall. The new card failed the first time I used it. B & H replaced it, and 6 months later my other card failed. Both times I could recover the images with the RescuePro software, but for a professional photographer who is paid to deliver, this unreliability causes me to recommend a recall on this card.
Excerpt: I purchased this card in early February. It worked 4 or 5 times, and then with our daughter's cotillion pictures on it, it failed. Neither my PC nor my Macbook Air could read the card. Then, when I put it back in the camera, the camera also could not read the card either. Sandisk authorized ground shipping return, and has refused to address my need to purchase some recovery software to recover the pictures. Their freeware would read only about every third picture.
Excerpt: Bought this card to take on vacation in Europe. Shot 130 images and reviewed images in camera. Next time I reviewed images 30 pictures had the following: File does not contain image data. Initially thought it was my mistake for not formatting the card before I used it. Took card to local photo store, which recovered all my images. They noted that the last image size was 100MB which is abnormal it should be closer to 13MB. All images were in RAW.
